Making do with less

Short supply of quality engineers in India is old news. The scarcity is spreading fast. Acute shortage of skilled professionals across different sectors including medicine, IT and aviation may dampen the Indian economy's growth rate, industry body Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) warns.

India will have a shortage of over half a million doctors and engineers each and thousands of pilots by 2012, according to a study by the chamber. In aviation there would be a requirement of 5,400 pilots soon and thereafter 150 pilots would be required each year to balance retirement and attrition. Currently between rival aircraft suppliers Airbus and Boeing, there’s a dog fight over the Indian market.

Imagine going under the surgeon’s scalpel without being numbed by an anesthetist.... Or being flown by half-a-pilot !
